Seems like an alright signing as long as the caps don’t give him too many minutes.

What a team this could have been. One of the best goal scorers in Ovechkin, one of the best goalies in Lundqvist and one of the best defenders in Chara. All nearing the end of their careers, but still. Good luck Z!

Sad bruins fans noises. Also I think the no’s are from bruins fans being like nooooo, why Chara ?

Good signing for the caps who are adding free agents

Who in the world saw this coming? I mean, it's a decent signing by WSH, but...does Chara have enough in the tank at this point given his recent decline?

I guess he's still a big shot from the point and a guy with cup experience. Didn't think the caps needed either of those things, so maybe a veteran presence to replace hank?

Chara should play on the powerplay as a net front presence, I remember when the B's scored 3 late goals against the Leafs in the 2012 playoffs Game 7, Chara had his butt in Reimer's face on 2 of them.
